Resource Rich and Regulation Heavy
Notorious for its stringent environmental standards, California environmental laws and regulations are among the toughest in the country. Our attorneys are adept at handling claims for clients in California and beyond.
California is a national environmental bellwether in air, water, and emission quality standards. Commercial interests in the state come under intense ecological scrutiny – a single misstep in the regulatory or permitting maze can easily threaten a business or municipality.
Archer Norris attorneys practice on the environmental frontline. We confront challenges before permitting boards and regulatory agencies statewide. As we tackle California’s most controversial issues involving water contamination, permitting disputes, CERCLA and toxic exposure, our environmental lawyers often set new precedents and strike novel resolutions.
High Efficiency in High Volume Cases
In large volume litigation, such as cases involving asbestos, silica, benzene, toluene and mold, we are expedient, efficient and effective. Our environmental attorneys developed and use a Master Case Tracking database to compile the critical components of asbestos cases. This proprietary knowledge bank links to more than 6,000 deposition transcripts and increases productivity, resolution and economies of scale.
Common Good, Common Ground
We work with clients to determine and manage the balance between modern life and the protection of California’s natural resources. Passionate client advocacy and on-the-ground local knowledge contribute to our influence on regulatory enforcement practices and standards statewide.
